Happy Thanksgiving From Martha Moments

There is so much to be thankful for in our corner of the world. Even though we here in Canada celebrated Thanksgiving in October, I think any opportunity to say thank-you and express gratitude for the peace, love and bounty in our lives should be siezed. Watching the news lately has really been an education in how fortunate we are to live in a part of the world that is so blessed in so many ways, from the relative peace we enjoy each day to the abundance of our natural resources. Promise yourself that you will say thank-you to everyone who provides a service for you this weekend, from the cashier to the gas attendant to the waiter. Say thank-you and mean it. Promise yourself that you will not only enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner but that you will consider its value and how blessed we are to be able to have convenient access to such delightful foods and to share it with those we love. Finally, promise to do something for someone else - even if it's as simple as holding the door open for the person behind you or smiling at a neighbour. I would simply like to say thank-you to everyone who reads this blog. Thank you, also, to Martha and your fabulous team. You continue to inspire! You have all made my world a little brighter. Thank you! And Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh! Suddenly, I just remembered that very first Martha Stewart Christmas tv special... what an impact that had on my life - and that book 'Entertaining'!

Did you know that the 'impoverished' bottom 10% of the US is in the top 30% wealth of the world? I didn't say that very clearly but do you know what I'm trying to get at?

So fortunate.... I'm grateful!
